Massive laminate fortress
Hazy cannibus porches
Saying no to the bores
It's not mine or yours, then I said
The wait sucks, I don't mind waiting
Once you get there, there's no more gates
And I gotta say

Stealing happy hours, stealing happy hours, yeah
Stealing happy hours, stealing happy hours, yeah

Don't wait one minute more to ask me
You make me feel like Hank Chinaski
In war all the time, war, war all the time
We're snatching bits of time that
No one else can seem to find

Stealing happy hours, stealing happy hours, yeah
Stealing happy hours, stealing happy hours, yeah

Stealing happy hours, stealing happy hours, yeah
Stealing happy hours, stealing happy hours, yeah
